3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pizzeria Toro, Durham. Nice to see some Green Man stuff every now and again, and a couple pints of this went down well. Nice lustrous orange pour, with a silky head. Soft English hops and substantial malts in the nose, definitely leaning strongly in the direction of leaf tea. Nice and smooth in the mouthfeel, not overly bitter on the palate. Not particularly full-flavored and aggressive in the way thatís standard for IPAs these days, so itís certainly a relatively toned down example of the style (despite the commerical description) and thatís no bad thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Jack of the Woods This ale poured a clear dark amber with an off-white head with lacing. You detect a citrus aroma with some caramel malts. The medium body IPA had average carbonation. Quiet bitterness grows into the swallow for a clean, gentle finish. There was a lingering bitterness that stayed until the last swallow.
